The company, led by Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is very progressive and invests in new technology that helps make their team and company more competitive. After talking with several solar energy companies, they engaged Entropy Solar Integrators, which recently installed a solar energy system on another NASCAR team’s facility. After evaluating their property, Entropy Solar recommended a rooftop mount installation on the 42,000 square foot race shop. In alignment with the team’s interest in educating its fans about new technology and sustainability, the company also installed a monitor in the JR Nation Retail Store that shows real time data about energy production and usage. Case Study: JR Motorsports In addition to the environmental and technological aspect of installing a solar energy system, this investment made business sense for JR Motorsports. As a net metering project, the company will save 44% on their energy bills by using solar energy as a supplement to energy provided by the local utility company. State and federal tax incentives total 65% in North Carolina, creating a payback period of less than six years and a system life of over 25 years. Additionally, the company can take advantage of equipment accelerated depreciation and bonus depreciation to offset their capital expenditures. In addition to adding clean, renewable energy to their facility, JR Motorsports has been working to reduce its impact over the years. Their program includes comingled recycling, sheet metal recycling, an oil recycle and reuse program, lighting upgrades, motion sensor lighting, and more.
